55 T Bird owned by Dwayne Peace, of Tyler , TX had a really great story to tell... it was a family project that started several years ago when the car bug bit the Peace sons. Dad bought them a Sonoma that he thought was a great car for them, only to come home and find them sanding the paint off of the car ......they wanted to “customize” it. THAT is how we know a bona fide born “car nut”.... they have to be modifying and working on their cars... And so ... the story began. They moved on to a Blazer which ended up being.. well ablaze when it burned. But the boys were determined car guys already.
The T Bird had been in the family for over 20 years and after trying to sell it with no “takers” they decided to “customize” it. Thus, Matt Peace’s Torq’d Design Lab in Tyler Texas was born. With such a big project, they enlisted the help of Jesse Greening and company ..and the crew collaborated brilliantly.
